The Skipper

On Gilligan’s Island, the Skipper Jonas Grumby (Alan Hale Jr) is the captain of the S. S. Minnow. A jovial fellow who gets exasperated by Gilligan on occasion, he still has the patience of a saint for not having thrown “little buddy” overboard.

Gilligan

On Gilligan’s Island, Gilligan (Bob Denver) is the Skipper’s first mate on the S.S. Minnow. During a storm, the bumbling Gilligan throws the anchor overboard without a rope attached, causing the ship to get stranded on an uncharted desert isle.

Popeye

Popeye the Sailor Man is a little rough around the edges but he’s really a stand up guy who likes to spend his days with his main squeeze Olive Oyl and his adopted son Swee’Pea. When he needs a little boost he just pops a can of spinach and he’s ready to meet any foe that dares cross him.

Cracker Jack Boy

Originally called “Candied Popcorn and Peanuts”, Cracker Jack was sold at the first Chicago’s World Fair. Not only is it well known for coming with a prize, but it will be forever linked with baseball as sung in “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”.

Captain Haddock

In The Adventures of Tintin, Captain Archibald Haddock is captain of the merchant vessel Karaboudjan. And like so many sea captains, he has a fondness, you might say, for the bottle and the pipe.
